30 million Americans suffer from rhinitis, a consistent runny nose that can weaken sleep quality, cause recurring sinus infections and post-nasal drip. If you’re tired of your rhinitis and sinusitis being triggered by simple irritants and experiencing a lesser quality of life, we provide RhinAer, an effective, simple treatment available to provide long-lasting relief.
What is RhinAer?
The RhinAer treatment uses low-temperature radiofrequency energy, emitted from a small, flexible tube that we will guide into your nasal passageway through a nostril. The radiofrequency energy disrupts the nerves that are signaling the runny nose without affecting the surrounding tissues.
Am I a Candidate for RhinAer Treatments?
Patients who have chronic rhinitis or sinusitis whose symptoms fail to respond to typical treatments, such as medication or other methods of alleviation are likely candidates for RhinAer treatments. Symptoms effectively treated by RhinAer include the following:
- Runny nose
- Post-nasal drip
- Nasal pain
- Stuffy, clogged nose
- Poor sleep
What Happens During the RhinAer Procedure?
We will begin your in-office procedure with local anesthesia. We will guide a small, flexible tube through your nostril and into your nasal passageway, where it will emit low-temperature radiofrequency energy to disrupt the nerve fibers that trigger the persistent runny nose. No incisions are made, and no pain is caused, although you can expect some minor discomfort.
